In response to a growing need to downsize your vehicle, without downsizing your lifestyle, manufacturers are making smaller cars without compromising quality. The new generation of compact cars are blending comfort, performance and safety into a more affordable package while meeting, and in some cases, rivaling luxury standards. In fact, the new Cruze comes equipped with ten airbags instead of the standard six.

Now, no longer viewed as an entry level car, Edmunds projects that small cars could make up as much as 25% of all vehicles sold in the US, by 2015.
